Can anyone help with this error? (I just want to see the contour of the bluish area at the bottom of the image)

Detect blue region properly
I0 = imread('frame75.jpg');
I1 = double(I0);
% colors from blue region
R = [80 50 0];
G = [160 110 70];
B = [180 120 70];
B1 = logical(I1(:,:,1)*0);
% detect regions and merge
for i = 1:length(R)
B0 = abs(I1(:,:,1)-R(i)) < 20 & ...
abs(I1(:,:,2)-G(i)) < 50 & ...
abs(I1(:,:,3)-B(i)) < 50;
B1 = B1 | B0;
end
% B1 = uint8( cat(3,B1,B1,B1) );
imshowpair(I0,B1)
% imshow(B1.*I0)

You the man! seriously..... It worked
I got the answer
ans = 431
just wondering when I counted manually answer was 486 and with binarizing 431... differrence in pixels are like 55. Do you know why there is that difference?
sum(~A1(:)) => means it is adding all the pixels in the image except white background

You need to specify a single channel image to imcontour(). For example, just provide the blue channel
imcontour(I(:,:,3), 3)
or convert image to grayscale
imcontour(rgb2gray(I), 3)

Hi,
Hamza please see the attached. I have changed to grey scale function to capture the contour of the injected dye flow but I am also getting the contours of other background is there a way to only capture the dye contour.
here is a code I used!
close all
clear all
clc
%Read the Image
I = imread('frame75.jpg');
I1 = imread('frame80.jpg');
warning('off', 'Images:initSize:adjustingMag');
%Convert to greyscale (contour command works on greyscale images)
img=rgb2gray(I);
img1=rgb2gray(I1);
%Subtraction of the frames
figure()
dif=img-img1;
warning('off', 'Images:initSize:adjustingMag');
imshow(dif)
hold on
% contour of the image
figure()
imcontour(dif,1);
